As the 2021-2022 school year comes to a close, the final events of the school year come around. Graduation and prom are staples of a senior’s schooling years, and at Naples High School, the student government looks to go out with a bang.

The event is officially stated to be held at the Artis-Naples on Saturday, April 30 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. NHS is the only prom being held at Artis-Naples and is also the very first prom to do so.

“Dancing and music starts at 7 p.m. and won’t stop until 11 p.m. with way better food and an all new location compared to previous years,” junior class sponsor, Karin Stewart stated.

Last Monday, seniors at NHS were able to sign up for prom and purchase their ticket followed by juniors last Tuesday. Prom tickets this year were $85 per student with the ticket being scanned on attendees phones when entering.

“Upon arrival, students will be able to pose for the camera in pairs or groups,” Stewart said. “Catered food stations will be offered from 7-10:30 p.m. with limited tables and seating outside.”

Due to COVID-19, the NHS prom has not been around for the past two years, meaning this is the big year back for prom. More students than ever have signed up to attend prom this year.

“Unlike the past few years, the setting of prom definitely will not be changing and with COVID restrictions being lifted, the prom will have optional masks,” Stewart said

A prom spirit week is also in final details with SGA representative, Mrs. Meinart.

“Students should expect a memorable evening with good food and dancing in an iconic venue, Naples Artis,” athletic director Cassie Barone said.
